Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!!
Can I start by getting the last 8 digits of your VIN to grab a starter wiring diagram so we can see what's going on? Also do you have a test light or multimeter?
Thanks for the reply!!
I attached the starter wiring for your vehice.. Can you tell me if you see any red security lights in in the dash? If not can you tell me if the yellow wire at start has 12v when you are starting? If not can you remove steering column shroud and tell me if the yellow wire has 12v when the key is in the start position?
I attached a picture of the ignition switch.. And click >>HERE<< for the ignition switch pinout.. The correct wire color coming out of the ignition switch is Gray/red and also can you check fuses 22 and 11 under the hood?
Sorry about that..
Check those and let me know what you find,
The Ignition switch is the 2nd picture on the left side of the steering column.. The Pink/White needs to have 12v when in the run position.. Also the Light Blue/Red needs to have 12v all the time..
The Light Blue/red comes from fuse 22 under the hood.. Can you check that fuse for 12v? Then check the voltage of your batteries and see if they have 12v..
Ok it runs from the fuse 22 to the ignition switch and if your ignition switch is only getting 8v then you need to check the wiring from the fuse box to the ignition switch
Yes it goes thru the bulkhead under the dash.. It has a 10mm bolt in the middle, just loosen it and see if you have any corrosion..
When you turn the key to the "On" position the dash should light up then after 10 sec some lights may go off, and then when you have the key in the "Start" position the lights should go out which is normal because the starter needs all the voltage it can to start...
If your not sure you tested correctly then retest the ignition switch and see which ones have 12v and when. I have also been doing some researching and I attached a few cases on what could be your issues with the ground and a few more issues.
Let me know,
You need to start at the ignition switch and see if the Light blue/Red has a constant 12v, then when the key is in the start position the Pink/White should have 12v. Also it would help to know what codes are in all the modules using a scantool.. I attached a example of our WiTech scantool topography.
